November court date set for Hope Solo

The trial of Olympic gold medalist and Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper Hope Solo was set for Nov. 4 after a short hearing Monday morning in Kirkland Municipal Court.

Her attorney, Todd Maybrown, said he aims to have the case dismissed and have evidence suppressed.

“As expected, and as is normal in misdemeanor cases, today’s hearing was about setting a trial date. We’re pleased that both sides, and the judge, agreed to a November date and we look forward to the opportunity for the truth about this incident to be disclosed, which will clear Hope’s name,” Maybrown said in an email.

Solo has pleaded not guilty to gross-misdemeanor charges for allegedly striking her sister and her nephew at a Kirkland home in late June. If convicted, she could face up to six months in jail.

At the hearing, Solo was accompanied by her husband, former Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens.
